What is Swim-A-Thon?
? North County Aquatics Swim-A-Thon is our one and only fundraiser of the year. The funds raised will help us keep our dues low, pay for coaches to attend swim meets, and purchase new equipment.
? Swim-A-Thon is a fundraiser in which participants earn money for their team by swimming lengths of the pool. This year we will hold an IMX Challenge swim meet. Each swimmer will participate in racing all four strokes and a IM (Individual Medley). Our younger swimmers will compete with modified events.
? Swimmers will get flat donations from family, friends, neighbors, businesses, etc. prior to swimming.
When and where is Swim-A-Thon?
